Our visit will combine guided visits with presentations and insights from local experts in the market. We will learn how a country with only 1,3 million inhabitants develops on a grand scale, a place where retail development is driven by franchise agreements & free rents and where land comes at no cost for the developer.
OPTION: There will be an option in the program to visit and get a presentation of Masdar City – the world’s first zero carbon city or a guided architectural tour of the newly opened Louvre art museum. Please note on your registration form if either of these visit are of interest to you.
